List Balancing for Reweighting and Population Synthesis

Performs iterative proportional updating given a seed table and an arbitrary number of marginal distributions. This is commonly used in population synthesis, survey raking, matrix rebalancing, and other applications. For example, a household survey may be weighted to match the known distribution of households by size from the census. An origin/ destination trip matrix might be balanced to match traffic counts. The approach used by this package is based on a paper from Arizona State University (Ye, Xin, et. al. (2009) <>). Some enhancements have been made to their work including primary and secondary target balance/importance, general marginal agreement, and weight restriction.
